What is Autism? Autism is a complex, lifelong developmental disability that can appear during early childhood and can impact a person’s social skills, communication, relationships, and self regulation.
Rebound (an AdvisaCare company) offers a Behavioral Health at home program. Services are based on a comprehensive physical, psychological, mental, cognitive, family and environmental evaluation.
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the gold standard in treating individuals who have Autism. At Rebound, we aim to work with clients and families to increase the socially significant behaviors that result in enhanced communication skills and independent living skills. At the same time, this process works to naturally decrease maladaptive/challenging behaviors. We closely collaborate with each of our client’s, family, school system, physician’s offices, community support/resources, and all others involved, to meet your needs!
1. Diagnosis of Autism: This is done by a licensed psychologist who follows the gold standard of a medical diagnosis.
2. Initial intake: A functional assessment interview along with a skills assessment will be conducted in order to determine the need for ABA.
